A Vanguardist piece; highly simplistic and gently prodding the notion that a separation between light and dark leads to alarm. However, this can only be discovered by the viewer or it may be wholly overlooked. The footage relies on the symbol of the tree which which has roots that leads in two directions simultaneously; one, directed downward towards the darkness (the earth) where it is nourished and the second, reaching upward into the light (sky) where it is also nourished. Hence the tree lives in both darkness and light simultaneously and needs both for its survival. (On a psychological note; those who seek the truth as it is are typically those who live an equal amount of time in darkness as they do in light, yet are the most honest and the most cognizant of reality.) The capture is stark, black and white (obviously), contrasted dramatically, pitting the darkness of the tree against the light of the sky yet in a mesh intended to show the blend of light and dark. The music was composed with the intention of evoking a sense of eeriness since a perfect mixture of light and dark is unknown to the human eye and mind and would be somewhat eerie to behold for the first time. What the film cannot convey, the music attempts to compensate for.

In astronomy and cosmology, dark matter is a type of matter hypothesized to account for a large part of the total mass in the universe. Dark matter cannot be seen directly with telescopes ; evidently it neither emits nor absorbs light or other electromagnetic radiation at any significant level. Instead, its existence and properties are inferred from its gravitational effects on visible matter, radiation, and the large-scale structure of the universe.
According to the Planck mission team, and based on the standard model of cosmology, the total mass--energy of the universe contains 4.9% ordinary matter, 26.8% dark matter and 68.3% dark energy. Thus, dark matter is estimated to constitute 84.5% of the total matter in the universe.
The Story based on Theo Jansen's kinetic sculptures. If we work really hard on our dreams sooner or later we will reach our goals. But what if one day our dreams go too far?

"I installed an ant colony inside my scanner five years ago. I scanned the nest each week..."
>This short film is an exploration of the aesthetic of life and degradation.
Five years ago, I installed an ant colony inside my old scanner that allowed me to scan in high definition this ever evolving microcosm (animal, vegetable and mineral). The resulting clip is a close-up examination of how these tiny beings live in this unique ant farm. I observed how decay and corrosion slowly but surely invaded the internal organs of the scanner. Nature gradually takes hold of this completely synthetic environment.
The ants are still alive : the process will continue…

The Killing Joke is a 15 minute suspense/fiction short film about a mysterious woman that finds a red balloon tied up to a curious little box on an eery derelict street. Using classic elements of suspense and working within a seventies aesthetic, 'The Killing Joke' is an action packed film that pays homage to some of the horror movies from that era.
The piece was shot during four intense days of filming in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires. The micro budget production was shot using just two 7d canon cameras. The composition and CGI effects for 'The Killing Joke' required months of 'invisible' digital retouching to create the panoramic, yet claustrophobic atmosphere that pervades throughout the movie.
The Film editor was Sabrina Mottino.
Sebastián López wrote and directed the story, and was also responsible for all the impressive post and composition work.
Colin Devlin created the Original Soundtrack, working from his home studio in LA he collaborated on the project with Sebastian from it's inception, creating a wonderful striking symmetry between sound and image.This is the second collaboration for Sebastian and Colin, the first being an action packed trailer created for a fictitious movie called 'Vertical' that went viral on the net, creating a serious buzz for the young director.
Actors Gustavo Marzo and Clarisa Staracci Worked together to portray the intense characters seen on screen.
The Killing Joke was a work of entire dedication and effort.
